Question: I have degenerative disc disease and need surgery or I am going to be in a wheelchair. I have no insurance. Help!
Dr. Amy: You may qualify for Medicaid. To find out, you will need to fill out an application. You can pick one up at the local Department of Family Services office. You can also go online at http://www.health.wyo.gov/default.aspx and download a copy, complete it, and mail it in (See, “Apply online for Medicaid” at the top left of your screen). This is a worthwhile step even if you think you may not qualify. If you are eligible, you can take the letter of denial to the hospital to see if they can arrange for your treatment to be covered by a non-profit grant. Good luck!
